Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

dryer

stepharoo 8/6/2018

This is my first dryer that isnt an old school top loader. The settings are a little confusing but I havent had time to learn about them yet. The lint trap only seems to catch lint in the bottom left corner not sure if thats normal or not. It dries everything my down blanket I had to dry again but I think thats to be expected. I stacked the washer and dryer to save floor space and Im liking that.

Basic but exceptional

ShelleyB 12/25/2017

My husband bought this during a laundry room remodel project adding the base stand to elevate it and make moving the wet clothes in convenient from my washer. I could not be happier. While it does not have the steam function and is a basic gas dryer it is quiet efficient and perfect for our use. The ease of use clean lines and overall fit / function far exceed my expectations. How did I live so long without one?

This is my first dryer with a digital control panel I find it very easy to use. Im very happy with this dryer it has all the choices I need very easy to understand. I especially like where the lint trap is located my last dryer had it on the top. I find this dryer very quiet I really like the chime instead of a buzzer when the cycle is done. So far Im happy with how it dries the clothes.
